Hi PingSkills Team

Today I practised my extremely weak loop and thanks to you I managed to empower it to the point that I even forced my sparring partner to focus a little on what he is doing, which I have never managed before.(Many players when sparring with me even use their non-dominant arm, because it is just enough to defeat me. Some of them even play matches with me  (on tournaments) with their non-dominant arm)

But some of my shots were jumping very high from his bat, but I did not realize if it is caused by a spin or by a power

Do you have any advcie how can I recognise it?

Thanks DK

Hi DK,

Well done.

It can be a combination of speed and spin that forces the ball to go up off their bat.

Thank you Alois

I will try to make him focus even more.

What do you think about that that my opponents are even playing me with nondominant arm etc. ?

I'm not sure what you are really saying. Non-dominant arm, are you saying that your opponent is using there other hand to hold the bat???


D K Posted 7 years ago

I am saying that sometimes a righthanded player uses his left hand to play specially me (and lefthanded his right arm).

But the main reason of my question is that I need to know if i am learning a fast loop or a low smash
